    I'm seeking a 3-5" female Theraphosa blondi or apophysis, or a large (9"+) stirmi. I'm also open to Pamphobeteus (not platyomma, fortis or nigricolor) or Xenesthis females in the 3-4" range, or a very large (9"+) Lasiodora.

    Thank you!

    You're a male, Megan? Also your post looks much like one I saw recently, and when questioned about reviews the poster never replied? Any response this time, Megan?

    Mhmm. Nearly word for word. Just a new name.

    Please please prove us wrong and post links to your reviews somewhere reputable hmm? No offense intended unless you are indeed, one and the same person.

    Enn, this guy is the same person who responded to @Marija recently, under a different username, when she was looking for a particular tarantula.

    Scammer confirmed - she sent me a 'borrowed' ventral pic taken almost two years ago posted on primarily non-English speaking sites. Scammer troll mode: engage.

    If anyone comes across a suspect buyer/seller please PM me. No doubt this one will try again with a different username.

    She's asking for Western Union, so hopefully no one falls for it.

    They're all over... it's in almost any selling/trading/hobby area of the internet. The important thing is to know it when you see it, and to have fun with them wherever possible. Right now Megan's husband is visiting Oakland area Western Union's trying to collect her money.

    Still looking for a Theraphosa, by the way.

    The comment was deleted... it was a person who used a message similar to one used by recent scammer. I'm emailing with her now - definitely a scammer.
